It appears to be obvious that we have a war going on in the market place for cell phone dominance. It’s a war of the smart phones, one which the likes have never been seen before. On one hand you have the iPhone severely cutting into the markets of Motorola, RIM – Research in Motion BlackBerries, and the various Nokia smart phone models. And now you have Google’s Android phone coming online fast, and seeing record breaking numbers of buyers.
Luckily, this smart phone market place and war for market share and dominance in the sector is creating much sound and fury in the media. As a flurry of news articles propel the sales of all manufacturers, providers, and component makers throughout the industry. 2010 will certainly be a pay-off year in the smart phone space, record sales at all levels, just in time for a global economic recovery in the tech sector.

So, the answer maybe no, and we should smarten up and come back into reality to understand this ominous force before we answer that question.
AT&T has one of the best coverage areas in the USA. But it’s not the only carrier. In areas where AT&T does not rule the water, in those states, Android is outselling iPhone. So, the customers do have a say, but the coverage area and the carriers still rule the day. It seems there is a bit of exclusivity and turf war and some battlelines being drawn in the sand here.
